(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Finding and keeping employees can be a challenge, but Youth Apprenticeship (YA) gives you the opportunity to connect with young, professional individuals who are exploring career opportunities and seeking employment at local businesses. The Youth Apprenticeship Information Summit will be held at Northcentral Technical College’s (NTC) Wausau campus on Wednesday, August 30 from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. in room E101/102.
 
The YA program, facilitated through Northcentral Technical College (NTC), is a rigorous elective statewide program for high school students that combines academic and technical instruction with mentored, paid, on-the-job learning that makes a real world connection for students. Youth Apprentices work a minimum of 450 hours at their YA work-site each year of their program and take related high school or college classes to enhance their work-site experiences.
 
“The Youth Apprenticeship program has been a great partnership with NTC and the different school districts.  We have had great success with the students we mentored, and it gave them a real life learning experience, which is extremely valuable.  It also helped our organization by providing some extra help and a mentoring experience for the full time employees,” said Mark Hanson, Fleet and Facilities Manager, City of Wausau – Public Works Department, Motorpool Division. “This program provides students experience that they will be able to use either furthering their education or going out into the job market.”
 
Anyone looking to build a workforce pipeline at their business is invited to attend this free event to learn how the YA program can provide direct access to high school juniors and seniors who are serious about starting and building their careers with local companies. Hear from local employers who have participated in the YA program and have best practices to share regarding how to successfully implement the program. Breakfast will be served at the event and registration is required. Reserve your seat by Friday, August 25 by visiting www.ntc.edu/yaevents.
